  7. Mongo Santamaría - Yeh, Yeh!
    (1963) Watermelon Man!

    Hancock filled in for pianist Chick Corea in Mongo Santamaría’s band one weekend at a nightclub in The Bronx when Corea gave notice that he was leaving. Hancock played the tune for Santamaría at friend Donald Byrd’s urging. Santamaría started accompanying him on his congas, then his band joined in, and the small audience slowly got up from their tables and started dancing, laughing and having a great time. Santamaría later asked Hancock if he could record the tune. Santamaría recorded a three minute version, suitable for radio, where he joined timbalero Francisco “Kako” Baster in a cha-cha beat, while drummer Ray Lucas performed a backbeat.[7] Santamaría included the track on his album Watermelon Man (1962). Santamaría’s recording is sometimes considered the beginning of Latin boogaloo, a fusion of Afro-Cuban rhythms with those of R&B.[8]
